AFSCME Florida

We are AFSCME Florida

From the break of dawn on Miami’s shores to well after the sun sets across Pensacola’s beaches, the hardworking men and women of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) make Florida happen. From Collier County to Clay County, the home of America’s first settlement in St. Augustine to mile marker zero in Key West, our members can be found providing the vital services to make the lives of citizens across the Sunshine State better through a shared commitment to public service. As Florida’s fastest growing union, we are a proud part of a 1.6 million member union that advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services and opportunity for all working families.

The justices heard oral arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, a case brought by powerful corporations who want to rig the economy and destroy our ability to come together in a strong union. Click here to see what this case is all about and how it will impact you.

Send a message to the CEOs and their political cronies that you will never quit fighting for your union.

Win or lose in this case, we will continue to raise our voice and build power together. We will continue to stand up for one another and stand up to the wealthy special interests. Sign this petition and recommit to our union, our fight and our freedom.
